About me


Since I have been a little girl I was joining orienteering competitions. My family is a classical orienteering- family and all members are regularly running in the forest. In 2013 I got selected for my first international competition, the European Youth Orienteering Championships, and this was the beginning of a specific training for orienteering. From this time on I was spending a lot of time in the forest.

 

For me the fascination of orienteering is the search for the so-called  flow. This describes the feeling of perfect orienteering, running apparently  effort- and weightless through the forest, finding all controls without the littlest problem and forgetting about the surrounding. There is only the forest, the map, mind and body existing. This is an unbelievable feeling and only very hardly to beat. 

 

After 2 years in the Junior National Team, to the end of 2017 I was selected for the Swiss National Team and so I made the step forward to the big ones. I'm looking forward to the new challenges!
